Newly Redesigned Environmental Results Program (ERP) Consortium Website Launched!

The ERP Consortium website has been redesigned and updated!  Check it out, bookmark it, and let us know what you think.

In an era of declining government resources and expanding pollution concerns, government agencies have developed innovative approaches, like ERP to address these challenges.  ERP is an integrated system of:

  • Plain-language compliance assistance that promotes pollution prevention;
  • Facility self-audit and compliance certification;
  • Agency inspections to verify certifications and assess performance; and
  • Statistically-based performance measurement.

The States ERP Consortium was formed to help environmental agencies learn about and implement ERP tools through:

  • Networking;
  • Developing and coordinating policy; and
  • Educating and communicating with ERP stakeholders.

Visitors to the website can expect to find:

  • Fact sheets describing ERP and its benefits and the ERP Consortium;
  • Guidance and tools for conducting an ERP;
  • Reports on the results of ERP Projects;
  • Calendar of upcoming events and PowerPoint slides from past events;
  • Links to useful information resources;
  • Summary of ERP activities in individual states;
  • Descriptions of other new compliance strategies, particularly those  targeting small and medium-sized business sectors; and
  • Contacts for more information.
